Full Funnel Freedom

059 1st Anniversary Episode! The 5 Dysfunctions of a Salesperson

Listen on

Episode notes

Exactly a year ago today, the very first episode of the Full Funnel Freedom Podcast went live. I'm incredibly grateful to everyone who has listened, written a review, given us a rating, and been a guest on the program.

In this special episode, I'll be sharing ideas and insights around the 5 dysfunctions of a salesperson and the possible underlying causes for your salespeople's lack of performance. For each of these dysfunctions, we'll go through some support tools you can use to take your salespeople out of what's preventing them from achieving full funnel freedom.

What You'll Learn:

- The five dysfunctions of a salesperson

- Why you need to stop selling the way you buy

- How to coach your salespeople into making super fast decisions

- Overcoming the need for approval in sales

- Why most salespeople get uncomfortable when talking about money

- Affirmations to help reprogram negative childhood scripts

- How to emotionally detach from the sales outcome

If you've been in sales leadership for any number of years, you will know that the perfect salesperson does not exist. Salespeople come in all shapes and sizes. Some consistently hit targets, while others barely manage to hit quota. The difference often comes down to limiting behaviors. If you happen to see a salesman struggle to drive results, they likely have one or even all of these five dysfunctions. It’s your job to help them overcome them.
